Yahoo Search kicked off its first index update of 2008.

Sharad Verma announced the Yahoo weather report this morning:

Over the last few days, we’ve been rolling out some changes to our crawling, indexing and ranking algorithms. While we expect the update will be completed soon, as you know, throughout this process you may see some ranking changes and page shuffling in the index.

Speaking of shuffling, Yahoo may see 700 jobs cut from the deck soon.
